"the President has to spend three years working in business before he becomes President of the United States

That sounds like an infinite causality loop. Why does Romney hate the space/time continuum?

The amount of troll headlines is getting absurd, it's about time for a break from the politics tab.

fta Left-wing social policies are predicated on giving more and more Americans more and more benefits and demanding less and less from them.

Left-wing politicians do stuff for their constituents and then leave them alone. Film at 11:00.

whole editorial boils down to liberals = bad, conservatives = good.

I can't believe people can be interested in hearing this same shiat day after day after day after day after day, even if it does reaffirm you political beliefs.

Irving Maimway: What did I just read??


Put simply: American Exceptionalism only applies when Republicans control the government.

When Democrats control the government, it's a sign of debased national character and the overwhelming stupidity and weakness of American citizens.

It's the same argument Republicans always use when they feel threatened.

I think the principles of the folks that the GOP have been backing willfully and with purpose, despite throwing the history and tenets of the Party of Lincoln have done that already.

If the party continues to back folks who actively want to limit the rights of citizens, who look out for the rights of corporate citizens over the rights of flesh and blood citizens, who only see "freedom of religion" to mean "freedom to be a Christian" and who throw away Teddy Roosevelt's concern over the environment and responsibility of the nation to secure and preserve our national resources for future generations, then it pretty much has not just weakened the character of the nation, but sucked the marrow from the bones...

You want to preserve the sanctity of marriage, perhaps we should stop supporting serial philanderers and folks who see affairs as normal business, and stop apologizing for hate mongers who desperately want to shed the "stigma" of their being gay by tearing down the rights of their fellow citizens. If we want to secure a better financial future for the nation, perhaps we need to support entrepreneurship as opposed to tearing down competition for all but our largest of businesses, and stop this maniacal War on Drugs that only keeps competition from the market, and fuels a prison industry. Perhaps we might be better off NOT extending power in brush fire undeclared wars across the world, and focus on building relationships with nations and building bridges between folks who the nation has actively stomped on when they got the idea that maybe governing themselves was a better idea than backing ideologues.

The leadership of the Republican Party has eroded more of our character than anything that the Democrats have done, and yet folks who scream for "MOAR PRINCIPLES" have yet to turn that ire on the folks who keep at it, and then wrap themselves in flag and church to justify it.

Just a thought.

Looks to me over the past few days the demonization of Ryan has been coming from the Right.

The GOP are talking about about character now?

I would cheerfully assassinate the character of both Romney and Ryan but you need to have something to start with.

/"Just because you are a character doesn't mean you have character".

Real question this election is "does living in a post Citizen's United decision world mean that the easily manipulated low info voters now decide elections?"

OMG - He is everything that the Dems hate.....Maybe Harry Reid can slither out from that rock of his say that he heard it from a friend of a friend of an acquaintance that Ryan kills baby koalas and uses their hide for his underwear and calls them his KoalaRoos.

Rational conservative thought has no place in the Politics tab.

Once again, there are no "leftists" in the United States, but only people who self-identify as such.

Fartbongo Obamalamadingdong is governing measurably, objectively to the RIGHT of Richard Nixon, kids.
And another newsflash: He's a neoliberal of the Chicago school.

/But who needs such differentiation nowadays, right?
//The American landscape consists of apes with the leg bones of cows screaming at each other.

Okay, seriously, when you talk about a specific group "weakening the character" of this country, you sound like a farking Nazi. It's a broad brush you're using, and it's painting a swastika.

Mugato: "the President has to spend three years working in business before he becomes President of the United States

That sounds like an infinite causality loop. Why does Romney hate the space/time continuum?


The Quantum MittBot is outside time and space. Outside human constraints on life and weakness, he understands all, he perceives all, he exists in all timelines and all dimensions. He assumes all positions, and stands against every injustice from every angle. In another timeline he and Ryan are heralded as the heroes of America casting out the wicked Barack Obama.

You often hear the Quantum Mittbot misspeak, but it only seems so in our current dimension.His confusion often comes from realizing which version of reality he is currently interacting with.

Like the whole "State's Rights!" thing goes away when there's a Republican in the White House?
 
2012-08-14 09:07:47 AM
The Republican vice-presidential candidate, Congressman Paul Ryan, is the Democrats' political version of the Anti-Christ. He believes in self-reliance

if the GOP (and wall street for that matter) had to compete in an actual free market...they'd get their asses kicked in no time flat. with all the tax breaks and subsidies and 'corporate welfare' we pump into those 'self reliant' companies it blows my mind that anyone could possibly believe the GOP lie of 'self reliance'.

I think that's a great idea... look at all of Dubya's real world experience as a CEO. When he became president his economic policies... err... ummm. Hmmm.

Ok, look at Clinton... he was a lawyer by trade and what he did to the deficit when he was president, it's a sure sign of... ummm.

Ok, take Bush Sr. He... nope.

St. Reagan? He was an actor and even the GOP says his economic philosophy... oh.

Nevermind. I guess it's just a statement the "writer" of the article threw out there without considering anything.

Mugato: "the President has to spend three years working in business before he becomes President of the United States

That sounds like an infinite causality loop. Why does Romney hate the space/time continuum?


I don't think Mitt thought his plan through. Obama has worked 3 years in private business already - Sidley & Austin in 1989, Hopkins & Sutter in 1990, and Davis, Miner, Barnhill & Galland from 1993-2004.

So, altogether, Obama was in private practice for about 11 years.

You know who hasn't worked 3 years in business? Paul Ryan.
 
2012-08-14 09:09:37 AM
also - it's pretty telling that here we are not even a week into Ryan joining the Romney campaign and already we're being told to back off and stop beating up on the guy.

hmm. rather curious, that.

What a bunch of pussies.

These aren't even smears or attacks. Most of the complaints against Romney have been POINTING OUT WHAT THEY'VE DONE AND SAID.

Paul Ryan is not bothered by the elderly having no support structure. A senior citizen, living on the streets? Paul Ryan doesn't care. He sees them as a burden to society. He watched Logan's Run as a child, and thought, "That looks awesome!"
